3 Days Mett Bushmen people

Escape the well-trodden main safari circuit of Northern Tanzania and explore the Yaeda Valley, to the southwest of the Ngorongoro Crater. The area is home to the Hadzabe, who are traditional hunter-gatherer people who have one of the richest and most interesting histories. You will be accompanied by an expert guide who has a long-standing relationship with the group. This short trip offers a unique chance to learn and witness first-hand how the Hadza live off the land. Their bush skills are something that has been long forgotten across much of Africa, and time spent with the Hadza offers a very raw and authentic cultural experience – something you will never forget.

Day 1

You will be picked up from Manyara Airstrip or Karatu by your guide and 4×4 vehicle and driven through the Ngorongoro highlands and down into the Lake Eyasi basin, characterised by open grasslands, rocky ridges and hundreds of baobab trees. The drive takes approximately 1-2 hours from Karatu, and you will expirence the lake eyasi fishing people were you will witness old style of fishing  then you would overnight at the tented camp 

Day 2

Enjoy an early start for breakfast before departing with a Hadza hunter and your guide. Hunting excursions are often a mix of honey gathering and eating berries, but also opportunistic if a monkey or mammal is seen. The hunting is typically a mix of walking and occasional running if the hunter sees something exciting.

Return to your camp for lunch and a siesta and, in the afternoon, walk for around an hour to a nearby Hadza village where your guide will introduce you. Set off on a walk with the women to gather berries, baobab fruit when they are in season and dig for tubers. Men will often join the walk to harvest honey from hives in the trees.

Return to your camp for sundowners and to enjoy the views over the valley while recounting tales of the day’s adventures.


Enjoy a  breakfast at the camp before departing by 4×4 with your guide back to Karatu or Manyara airstrip where your adventure concludes.
